Pats LB likes Instagram put up bashing Butler benching

English Premier League mulls winter break to emulate Europe

Instead, Belichick started cornerback Eric Rowe, who said after the game he had "no idea" why Butler didn't start or play in the Patriots' 41-33 loss to the Eagles.

"I appreciate the question, but it would be a much longer discussion", Belichick told reporters.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick claimed post-game that Butler's benching wasn't a disciplinary decision, but merely due to the specifics of their gameplan against the Eagles.

Butler played 97 percent of the Patriots defensive snaps during the regular season but played zero percent in the Super Bowl.

On NFL Network's postgame show, analysts and former players LaDainian Tomlinson and Deion Sanders agreed that benching Butler cost the Patriots dearly. "I didn't know how to feel watching that s-t, without my homie playing, without Malcolm f-king playing, didn't know whether to cheer for their ass".

"The guy has played a lot of football, so to not be out there I'm sure crushed him", Patriots safety Devin McCourty said.

Butler, who was not at Monday's media night and was limited on Wednesday while reportedly dealing with flu-like symptoms, did see snaps on Sunday on special teams.

The Patriots' defense struggled mightily against the Eagles, surrendering the most points (41) and total yards (538) of any playoff game under Belichick.

If you're going to go down, you may as well at least go down with your best players on the field.

After the game, the cornerback didn't have anything to say as to why he didn't play in the biggest game of the season.

"Man, Bill wasn't right at all tonight, man", Browner said in an expletive-laden Instagram post. "That's about it", Butler told ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Compounding Butler's frustration was that he heads into the off-season as a restricted free agent and thus may have played his last game as a Patriot. You divide the locker room when you do that. Butler was a star in the team's 2014 National Football League title. He started his Patriots career with a life-changing, Super Bowl-winning interception.

There is always a method to Belichick's madness.

Unsurprisingly, Butler was not happy about the benching.
